Trusts and Foundations

The support of trusts and foundations, large and small, is vital to our work. With the help of your trust we can:

  • save buildings, give them new life and continue to look after them.
  • protect important landscapes.
  • care for the natural environment and unique, native species of Lundy, a small island in the Bristol Channel.
  • preserve traditional building skills.
  • implement a programme of educational activities for children.

Trusts and Foundations have recently helped to fund:

  • the rescue and restoration of a Georgian villa in Dorset.
  • exceptional work at our existing buildings, such as repair work following storm damage in extreme weather conditions at coastal properties.
  • a programme to eradicate rhododendron, an invasive plant on Lundy, which is threatening native species.
  • our work generally. Some trusts and foundations award grants for us to use where the need is greatest.

How your grant could help

  • £500 to supply a small library of books in one of our buildings
  • £1,000 to carry out tree ring dating to find the age of timbers in a building
  • £3,000 to repair the roof structure of a small building
  • £5,000 to carry out 50m2 of specialist lime plasterwork
  • £12,000 to construct an oak spiral staircase for a small turret
